Adolescents Socioeconomic Status, Socialization and Academic performance of Two Secondary Schools in the Education District of East Trinidad and Tobago

Valentine Smith [4]


Abstract: The paper investigated adolescents socioeconomic status and academic performance at two secondary schools in the Education District of East Trinidad and Tobago. A stratified random sample was generated from random samples of two Mixed Government secondary schools in East Trinidad and Tobago. Descriptive statistics methods were used for the analysis of data. The data analysis of socioeconomic status revealed that lower-class students were performing better than middle-class students. The findings of the paper contradict the predictive nature of socioeconomic status and academic performance. Socioeconomic status has been shown to override other educational influences.
